, supervisor wiener and mr. farrell are having a conversation instead of listening to the public. various of the other supervisors were talking with each other or texting, i think that is very unfortunate. i think i said last week that i hoped supervisors will pay attention to the public which they presumably serve. i hope that particularly the new supervisors don't get off on this bastard. i see that there is no clock going. if you could correct that for the public it would help particularly when you have an illegal two-minute time limit for the public and yank the plug after two minutes. it is good to honor gay folks but when there is an opportunity for fund raising by folks that have an inside track the same folks concerned about making good pr about gay things don't really care about other things. in the -- heights branch library a gay artist created a mural which was not only allowed destroyed, but some of the folks here actively participated in getting rid of. a bisexual singer on it in that mural wiped out. nothing remains. and multiracial mural that also honored women working g
